Talk:2008-04-08 Ruthlessness gene discovered
Genesis Biolabs is offering a mail-in test for the "ruthlessness" gene.
"We are a product not just of our genetics, but of our experiences and our choices. However, one can conceal or misrepresent ones choices and motives, but genetics do not lie. There are numerous situations where knowing if someone has the ruthless or altruistic version of AVPR1a might be useful. Before getting married, or making a business partnership, this genetic test might be appropriate. All of our politicians should probably submit to this test. "
An objective test of whether someone really has only his own interests at heart seems very valuable to me.
